ABOUT US

THE PRACTICE 3rd DIMENSION Architects was established in 1992 as an experimental Design studio, and soon evolved into an architectural practice that strives continuously for distinction. Both founders, architects May and Mohamed Chebaro share the same enthusiasm and passion for architecture, and their creative skills merged to produce architecture of excellence and character. Today,

25 years later, 3rd dimension enjoys a

reputation of a well trusted architectural practice that employs skilled and talented individuals that serve its clientele to the best of its knowledge securing them a product with a unique aesthetical vocabulary that has long distinguished the team's approach. We consider each project a new challenge, we investigate approaches, and we question and test each solution until a concept is born and evolves into a product that serves the function with grace and elegance.

We call this marriage between function, science and art, “Architecture�.

Mohamed Chebaro Our practice is BIM oriented since 2005 using "AUTODESK Autocad Architecture" and since 2010 using "AUTODESK Revit". We produce all BIM models following the latest industry standards.

Production Studios (area: 8000m2) Kahhaleh - Lebanon Shk. Hisham elhafez On hold Consultancy: Full scope

Description: The project originated from a will to invest in the multimedia business flourishing throughout the middle east through the erection of three 1000m2 (would have been the largest in the middle east) and four 500m2 production studios serviced by a 6 floors administration building containing offices, changing and make-up rooms, and control and editing rooms. The basic planning and distribution concept originated from the best use of the slope of the site purchased in kahhaleh which dictated the layout of the different functions and specifically the administration building being central and inverted (ground floor and 5 underground floors, lit through an internal courtyard, with two panoramic lifts). The general architecture was aimed at reflecting prestige and excellence, and the architectural elements have been largely borrowed from the shape and material of equipments used in the filming trade, to produce an architectural composition that reflects grandeur.
